Read by Anna Acton. Lou Clark has lots of questions. Like how it is she's ended up working in an airport bar, spending every shift watching other people jet off to new places. Or why the flat she's owned for a year still doesn't feel like home. Whether her close-knit family can forgive her for what she did eighteen months ago. And will she ever get over the love of her life. What Lou does know for certain is that something has to change. Then, one night, it does. But does the stranger on her doorstep hold the answers Lou is searching for - or just more questions? Close the door and life continues: simple, ordered, safe. Open it and she risks everything. But Lou once made a promise to live. And if she's going to keep it, she has to invite them in . . .

A wedding invitation arrives in the mail: your boyfriend of the past nine years is engaged to someone else. You can't say yes--it would be too awkward--and you can't say no--it would look like defeat. On your desk are a series of invitations to half-baked literary events around the world.QUESTION: How do you arrange to skip town?ANSWER: You accept them all.What would possibly go wrong? Arthur Less will almost fall in love in Paris, almost fall to his death in Berlin, barely escape to a Moroccan ski chalet from a Saharan sandstorm, accidentally book himself as the (only) writer-in-residence at a Christian Retreat Center in Southern India, and encounter, on a desert island in the Arabian Sea, the last person on Earth he wants to face. Somewhere in there: he will turn fifty. Through it all, there is his first love. And there is his last.Because, despite all these mishaps, missteps, misunderstandings and mistakes, Less is, above all, a love story.A scintillating satire of the American abroad, a rumination on time and the human heart, a bittersweet romance of chances lost, by an author The New York Times has hailed as "inspired, lyrical," "elegiac," "ingenious," as well as "too sappy by half," Less shows a writer at the peak of his talents raising the curtain on our shared human comedy."I could not love LESS more."--Ron Charles, The Washington Post"Andrew Sean Greer's Less is excellent company. It's no less than bedazzling, bewitching and be-wonderful."--Christopher Buckley, The New York Times Book Review
DADDY'S WISH Weihnachten. Die Zeit der Besinnlichkeit – oder die Zeit, herauszufinden, dass mein Vater eine halbe Million Dollar Schulden bei einem Gangster gemacht hat, der es für eine gute Idee hält, dass ich die Summe "abarbeite". Damit es nicht dazu kommt, versteckt mich Eliah Crane in seinem Chalet in den Bergen. Solange ich denken kann, bin ich in Eliah verliebt. Allerdings war er in meiner Fantasie nie mein unfreiwilliger und extrem genervter Babysitter ... DADDY'S GIFT Warum hatte ich noch gleich zugestimmt, Medienmogul Anson Ford zu einer Weihnachtsparty zu begleiten? Ach ja, weil er mir zehntausend Dollar geboten hat und ich das Geld dringend brauche. Nach nur zwei Minuten in seiner Gesellschaft habe ich übrigens fünfzehntausend Dollar verlangt. Er verabscheut meine Schuhe, mag das Kleid nicht und hasst den Lippenstift. Das wird ein verdammt langer Abend ... NICE DADDIES Um mein aktuelles Buch zu beenden, verbringe ich Weihnachten dieses Jahr in einem abgelegenen Hotel im Schnee. Die einsame Winterlandschaft ist die perfekte Inspiration für meinen Liebesroman, und es schadet nicht, dass die beiden Besitzer des Hotels mir jeden Wunsch von den Lippen ablesen – wirklich jeden Wunsch ... NAUGHTY DADDIES Das Universum hat sich gegen mich verschworen. Mein Auto steckt in einer Schneewehe fest, es ist kein Abschleppdienst zu finden und als endlich zwei attraktive Männer auftauchen, um mich zu retten, verteile ich ein gutes Dutzend Sexspielzeuge im Schnee. So kann man natürlich auch einen bleibenden Eindruck hinterlassen. DADDY'S HO HO HO Seitdem ich meine Nachbarin unter eher unglücklichen Umständen kennengelernt habe, meidet sie mich wie die Pest. Deshalb überrascht es mich umso mehr, dass ausgerechnet sie einen Callboy für Weihnachten buchen möchte. Ich brauchen nur zwei Klicks, damit ihre Nachricht nie ans Ziel kommt und sie von mir ihre vermeintliche Buchungsbestätigung bekommt ...

A dark secret hangs over the old rose gardener's house in the village of Le Variouf. And all the clues seem to point to its inhabitants' past—to the years of World War II, when the idyllic island of Guernsey was occupied by German troops...

The young teacher Franca Palmer is at the end of her rope. Her marriage is reaching a crisis point, and she barely feels capable of continuing to face the demands of her career, her husband, and day-to-day life. In a mad rush she leaves her comfortable home in Berlin and flees to the island of Guernsey in the English Channel; there she rents herself a room in the old rose gardener's house in the village of Le Variouf. In a short time, a peculiar, guarded friendship develops between her and her host, Beatrice Shaye. The older woman has lived on the charmingly situated property for many years with Helene Feldmann—tied together by fate in a relationship that is marked with repugnance and hatred. The two women appear to be bound to one another in a mysterious, incomprehensible way—dating back to the year 1940, when during the occupation of the Channel Islands by German troops, Helene and her husband Erich, a high-ranking officer, took Beatrice in as if she was their own child. From the beginning, the Feldmanns competed for Beatrice's favor, all the more so since, where his wife was concerned, Erich felt only contempt. So it was that with his death on May 1st, 1945, an agonizing phase in both women's lives came to an end. But nevertheless, a shadow still hangs over the house. And one day, another May 1st, there is again a death in Le Variouf.
